Equity in the Media

We all need news that fully reflects our communities and responds to our interests in order to live well and participate meaningfully in civic life.  

To meet this need, journalism must reflect the communities it covers, but unfortunately, mainstream media outlets often struggle to cover Black Americans and other communities of color adequately.

In order to cover a community, you need to understand it — and that means listening to its people, and to the people who represent it. And that means diversifying your sources.

YWCA Greater Cincinnati is partnering with the Greater Cincinnati Association of Black Journalists and All-In Cincinnati to bring insights and resources to local media professionals.
